Sunset Run on Peregian Beach >>>BALLOONS EVERYWHERE!
After a lovely run along the beach with my friend Pippa, we walked back picking up plastic. We found a mixture of things, but I could not believe how many balloons and parts of balloons there were!
Balloon releases are still occurring despite the environmental impacts (recent news articles: BBC news, Independent news).
However there are alternative ways to celebrate, pay tribute or mark an occasion: Alternatives from the Marine Conservation Society
